Bicyclist Critically Injured in Crash at East Lake Rd and Keystone Rd

UPDATED: November 6, 2017 – Original Post November 1, 2017 4:30 p.m.

East Lake Fire Rescue responded to a motor vehicle versus a bicyclist collision near the intersection of East Lake Rd and Keystone Rd. The crash occurred at about 3:11 p.m on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

A 70 year-old Palm Harbor woman was traveling southbound on East Lake Road in a 2011 Hyundai Sonata.

The bicyclist, William Craig Gilbreath, age 57 of Tampa, was traveling westbound on Keystone Road.  The Sonata had a green traffic signal according to Troopers when Gilbreath entered into the intersection.

Gilbreath was transported via Bayflite to the trauma center at Bayfront Health St. Petersburg where, as of November 6th, he remains in critical condition.

Neither the 69 year-old passenger in the Sonata nor the driver were injured in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.




    • Just for the record, the woman who hit him on his bicycle is 71-year-old Martha Jarrett from Palm Harbor. Craig Gilbreath was in Bayfront Trauma Unit in St. Petersburg for exactly two months before he died as a result of her running him over. Craig was totally disabled from the traumatic brain injury that he sustained and was going to be transferred to a skilled nursing facility where he would have lived the rest of his “life”. His hospital bill was almost $1,250,000. Add on another $42,000 for the Bayflight bill. There were way more medical bills, but those were the top ones.

      Meanwhile, I am wondering: Are you enjoying life, Martha Jarrett? Your children and grandchildren? Enjoying all of your family events, Martha Jarrett? Craig isn’t.

      We never heard one word from you…You never even said you were sorry.
